Beautiful, spacious historic home with a New Orleans feel. Master bath with jacuzzi tub, 2 bedrooms upstairs with en suite bath, downstairs guest room with bath, private back deck to grill and enjoy a drink. TV and WiFi. Algiers Point is a quiet mostly residential neighborhood with several bars and restaurants. It's just a ten-minute ferry ride to Canal Street where you can easily walk to the French Quarter or catch the streetcar into the CBD, Garden District and Uptown.
We both grew up in the South and had visited New Orleans several times. When we had an opportunity to move here, we jumped at it! We love being able to amble down to the ferry and walk to Cafe' du Monde or catch a band on Frenchman's Street.
Beth Napier purchased this house in 2011
When we moved to New Orleans, we weren't quite sure where we wanted to buy a home, so we rented a house on Magazine Street and began exploring the city. We loved being so close to everything, but it was a bit busy for us. One day, we took the Algiers Ferry over to the Dry Dock Cafe' and fell in love. We can rock on the front porch under hundred-year-old oak trees and in ten minutes, be in the Quarter or the Marigny. If we want to go Uptown or to the Garden District, we just hop a streetcar. There's always a party, a parade, music, food! And, on our side of the river, the five-mile long walking and bicycle path on the top of the levee with a view of downtown is unbeatable.
I fell in love with shining hardwood floors, twelve-foot ceilings, broad crown molding and the wide-open dining-kitchen-living space downstairs. The view of the Mississippi River Bridge out the upstairs bedroom window is amazing. The back deck is very peaceful and a great place to watch fireworks from across the river!
Beth and Denny were amazing. They helped out with anything we needed even when it was something they'd never been asked about before. The house was beautiful and in a great location for our needs. I would definitely recommend this house and Beth and Denny to anyone. Hopefully in May 2020 we will be back!
We loved Napier House! Our family of 8 stayed here for Easter. The house was very spacious and came equipped with everything you could imagine. Beth was extremely helpful. She gave us suggestions on what to do and where to eat. She told us about a nearby grocery store that sold boiled crawfish along with sausage, corn and potatoes. We picked some up, and enjoyed our own crawfish boil on her back patio. Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I highly recommend this home and can't wait to return!
I love this place! My hosts were wonderful. The house is great. Comfortable, well appointed, charming and so easy to relax in as soon as you get out of your car. I cried when I had to leave. Thank you Beth & Denny. I will be back.
We just got back from an amazing trip to New Orleans with three generations of our family (2 grandparents, 4 40-something parents, 3 kids aged 11 months to 10 years). The Napier House in Algiers was a perfect spot for our group. We all really enjoyed being in a true New Orleans residential neighborhood instead of right in the French Quarter or in a hotel in the suburbs. The Napier house was so comfortable and homey with lots of interesting flair. We felt like we were staying at a fun, interesting friend's home! the house was very clean, beds super comfortable, and front porch so inviting. We would definitely stay again; in fact my husband and I are already looking for another opportunity to get back there!
The house is located about a half mile from the ferry that delivers you right to the French Quarter area in about 15 minutes (though the ferry schedule is not terribly reliable). We did rent a car, and I am glad that we did as public transportation proved to be a bit difficult and unreliable (especially when working with baby/kid schedules). I think if we visited again without our baby, we would be comfortable relying on public transport, but if you have kids, I would recommend a rental car.
Beth (the amazingly helpful owner) introduced us to some great eateries in Algiers (especially Tout de Suite Cafe where we had breakfast several times in one week). We also discovered a true gem - The Appetite Repair Shop (open Thursday through Sunday only and it it take out only, but the best take out you can imagine!)
Beth was so wonderful to work with. From stocking our house with groceries prior to arrival to recommending activities and restaurants to making a special trip over to close a window I accidentally left open while we were gone all day, she was so communicative and responsive during our stay.
We all had a really wonderful trip and recommend New Orleans and the Napier House (for adults only or families with kids)!
Located in historic Algiers Point the Napier House is a wonderful vacation rental. The house is spacious, beautifully decorated, fully stocked and comfortable. It is the perfect location for people who want to be close to but not right in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter. Lot's of local color and within walking distance of the Old Point Bar, a great local hang out with live music most nights. A short ferry ride across the river puts you in the heart of the French Quarter. Beth and Denny were great host with lot's of suggestions for things to do and see in New Orleans. Beth even offered to shop for staples which she had stocked in the house by the time we arrived. We had four couples on this trip and everyone was very happy with our choice of the Napier House.
We enjoyed our stay the the Napier house. We had 3 couples, so each was able to have a bedroom and bath. All the rooms were very comfortable and well decorated. Everything we needed was available in the house. All were impressed with the number of towels provided for use. The weather was good, so we enjoyed sitting out on the front porch. The ferry ride to the quarter was very nice, just about a 15 min walk. Beth was very friendly and helpful. She had a few items that we requested in the house when we got there. Thanks for a great time.
This home is located in historic Algiers point within easy walking distance to Algiers Ferry -- in ten minutes you can be across the river and three blocks from the French Quarter restaurants, bars and fun!
